Elon Musk's Unexpected Journey into Diablo 4: A Tale of Skill, Death, and Resilience

Picture this: Elon Musk, the visionary behind SpaceX and Tesla, not in a boardroom or lab, but immersed in the dark, fantastical world of Diablo 4. Yes, you read that right. The tech mogul has been spotted hacking and slashing his way through Blizzard's latest RPG game. This revelation came to light during a recent Twitter Spaces session, where the sounds of Musk's virtual battles could be heard in the background.

The Man Behind the Character

When questioned about the 'X' rebrand during the Twitter space, Musk casually revealed, "I'm just playing some Diablo 4 right now." He then humorously expressed his annoyance at being interrupted from his game for discussions. But the real kicker? His character in Diablo 4 is aptly named 'IWillNeverDie.' However, Musk was quick to clarify that his character has indeed met his demise in the game, contrary to his invincible moniker.

Musk's Take on Diablo 4

Musk's foray into Diablo 4 isn't just about the thrill of the battle. He also shared his thoughts on the game's skill level. According to Musk, "You don't need a lot of skill to play Diablo 4 to be fully frank. It's not like a hardcore skill game – it's not like League [of Legends] or something."

This comment caught the attention of Blizzard president Mike 'Qwik' Ybarra, who cheekily responded, "Maybe I should have the team see how many times he's actually died – what think? Wonder if he's playing hardcore." Note to self and all Diablo 4 players: never claim that Diablo 4 is easy!

When Two Worlds Collide

The intersection of Elon Musk and Diablo 4 is a fascinating blend of reality and fantasy. Given the 'X' color scheme of black and silver, one can't help but wonder if Musk's team drew inspiration from Diablo's dark, macabre world when designing it. Whether this is a good thing or not, I'll leave that up to your interpretation.

The Art of Building in Diablo 4

While Musk's character may have died in the game, it's worth noting that the success in Diablo 4 largely depends on the build of your character. Trust me, the best Diablo 4 builds are labeled as such for a reason. It's also no secret that some Diablo 4 classes outshine others. All I can say is, I genuinely miss my Diablo 4 review Rogue – she was truly the best.


Elon Musk's unexpected journey into Diablo 4 serves as a reminder that even the busiest of individuals need a break to unwind and enjoy a good game. His character 'IWillNeverDie,' despite its ironic fate, symbolizes Musk's resilience and determination, traits that have propelled him to the forefront of technological innovation. So, whether you're a tech mogul, a hardcore gamer, or a casual player, remember to enjoy the journey, learn from each defeat, and keep pushing forward. After all, isn't that what gaming – and life – is all about?
